This book is a real page turner but you also learn a lot while reading it. The dialogue is just great, and it's cool to see all of the parallels between the two stories and the way the city changes over time. Even if the connection between the two stories isn't clear at first, it all really comes together in the end.

This book has all the elements Netflix would love in a tv-series: timelines, a mystery, daddy issues, and a bit of the usuals (action and a romance). If you can't tell that this is going to be Hong Kong-centric from the name and cover, then it's probably not for you. People who know what '84 and '14 were like in HK will really appreciate the hidden references and plot (oh and if you know any Canto, then all the more fun!) Ethan Kaplan's 'When a White Horse Is Not a Horse' will give you some giggles here and there too, and is best enjoyed by HK cinema or triad buffs who are craving a good plot-driven romp through two enjoyable epochs of Hong Kong history.
